About

Art & Creativity for Healing, Inc. has worked with over 10 Homeless shelters doing our Art4Healing Workshops and these families found a new way to say things that they have no words for related to the adverse circumstances to their lives. We package small, portable art kits that include 6 items: sketch pads, colored pencils, sharpeners, journals, pencils, and markers. Historically, Art & Creativity for Healing, Inc. began giving away Healing Art Boxes for economically disadvantaged children throughout Orange and San Diego Counties in 2009. Since then, we have given away 9,600 art bags and art boxes to: OC Rescue Mission, Someone Care's Soup Kitchen, American Family Housing, Project Hope Alliance, Illumination Foundation, Skyview Elementary, Rosie's Garage, Thomas House Shelter, Orangewood, FaCT Orange County, and more. We giveaway art kits at non-holiday times of the year to inspire creativity all year around. We are looking for families to help us assemble (and optional delivery of) 250 art kits for these homeless shelters in our community at large. This project is good for kids 10 years old and up. All voluntEARs will be required bag the supplies and add a bow. At the beginning of the volunteer project, our Founder and Executive Director, Laurie Zagon, will present the mission of Art & Creativity for Healing, along with a fun and easy art workshop so that all volunteers will be familiar with the method that gives pain a voice.

How This Helps Our Community

This project will culminate in gifting 250 art kits to homeless shelters in Orange, San Diego, and Los Angeles Counties. Through this project, we hope our VoluntEARs will learn more about how Art & Creativity for Healing, Inc. provides our community at large with our Art4Healing Workshops. Through experiencing and participating in a fun art workshop, they can get first-hand experience how art can be healing for individuals of all demographics. For many of these children at homeless shelters, they have never had art supplies in their possessions. We hope that the families who help assemble these art kits understand how they are changing lives through art.
